"Feed me JGL!" Is Warner Bros plotting a new reboot for The Little Shop of Horrors?

Figure yourself for a botanist with one helluva green thumb? Well, even you might have had a challenge pruning one very tenacious, and decpetive carnivorous plant from outer space.

Little Shop Of Horrors, a 1930’s story, which was then turned into a film by legendary B Movie director Roger Corman, was also remade back in 1986 by Frank “Yoda” Oz, and has spawned several musical shows, as well as an animated series.

And now, Warner Bros wants to re-remake the iconic wailing plant.

Currently being written by Roberto “Carrie Remake” Aguirre-Sacasa, the film has also lined up Joseph Gordon Levitt to help produce it, with talk that he might handle the leading role of Seymour himself.

And so far, that’s actually brilliant news, as this crafts a remake that might just be worth seeing. Aguirre-Sacasa is no stranger to adapting musical and stage plays for the big screen, while Levitt himself is in a visible and popular phase in his career, and starring in a film such as this would him expand back into more slightly comedic, although still dark, territory.

And hey, musicals are all the rage these days. My recommendation? Get Tom Cruise to handle the iconic role of the sadistic dentist, and put Bill Murray back in the root canal chair.
